    I am trying to add form submissions as entries in my Filemaker database or at the very least add them as records to an existing .csv or Excel file. Generating a report of the submissions is good but very impractical to do this for every submission. Is there a way to automatically add the entries to the file given the vast integrations with other programs and platforms? thanks.

    Unfortunately, we do not have an integration with FileMaker Pro. It seems that this is a stand alone program. Normally, we use API to integrate JotForm to 3rd party apps.

    However,  you can download your submission record in Excel/CSV format and then import it in your FileMaker Pro. Here are the guides:
    How-to-Create-an-Excel-Report
    How-to-Create-a-CSV-Report

    Now, you might want to check the support page of FileMaker Pro on how to import files.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    Hi...

    I'm Bill Krauss, Technology Director at Angel City Data. We're a FileMaker Platinum Partner and have lots of experience integrating different platforms with FileMaker. (We're on the web at http://angelcitydata.com.)

    Although we haven't done a JotForm integration (yet), we have built bridges between FileMaker and other online form creation platforms. CSV import is certainly possible, but using the JotForm API would probably be more efficient, robust and flexible.

    If you'd like to discuss some options, feel free to give me a call at 818-238-0172. No obligation, of course.

    Regards,

    Bill
